Defense contractor Northrop Grumman is closing shop in Los Angeles, and relocating their corporate headquarters in Virginia, according to cbs2.

About 300 employees currently work for the aerospace, electronics, shipbuilding, and information systems giant here at their Century City offices; those jobs are described as "high-salaried executive positions."

Despite relocating their corporate digs, a news release notes:

Northrop Grumman will remain the largest aerospace company in California with approximately 30,000 employees. Its Aerospace Systems sector is headquartered in Los Angeles County, and each of the company's other four sectors have major facilities in the state.
